0-2 was swept miserably! Chen Yufei lost to the Indonesian player in the Japanese tournament and lost the championship, and the IELTS combination won the mixed doubles
On November 19, Beijing time, the 2023 Japan Badminton Masters began to compete for the final day, the second women's singles final, the national badminton Olympic champion Chen Yufei faced the Indonesian sister Mariska, although Chen Yufei's ability advantage is very obvious, but this final was completely out of shape, and finally lost two games in a row 0-2 and was swept miserably, Chen Yufei lost the championship in an upset!
Chen Yufei ranked No. 3 in the world, the women's singles gold medalist of the Tokyo Olympics, a veritable national feather sister, has won 3 championships this season, the recent Denmark Open Badminton Championships + French Open Badminton Championships won the championship in two consecutive World Badminton Federation 750 events, on the way to the promotion of the Japan Badminton Masters, Chen Yufei won 2 strong opponents in a row, 1/ defeated Rio Olympic champion Marin in the 4 finals, and defeated the world No. 1 An Seying, who has won 11 championships in all competitions this season, in the semifinals, and Chen Yufei showed an inexplicable state in the 2.0 period. On the other hand, another player in the final, Mariska, did not encounter too strong opponents on the way to the finals, defeating unseeded players in the first three rounds, and only defeated a seeded player, the Chinese-American star Zhang Beiwen, in the semifinals.
There is no doubt that before the start of the women's singles final, consecutive victories over Marin, An Xiying's Chen Yufei was more optimistic, but after the start of the finals, Mariska played quite actively in the first game, seizing the opportunity to frequent surprise kills, Chen Yufei was tired of defense, Mariska led 11-5 into the break, after the break came back, Chen Yufei once chased 11-15, but in the critical stage of chasing points, Chen Yufei's 2 consecutive return out of bounds mistakes hurt morale, Mariska scored 20-11 to take the lead in getting multiple game points, although Chen Yufei saved a game point, but Mariska once again used his assault straight line to score directly to cash in 21-12 game point, Chen Yufei lost the first game。 In the first game, Mariska was full of energy, sharp in attack + unable to run in defense, but Chen Yufei's personal mistakes were too many.
At the beginning of the second game, Mariska was still in good shape, Chen Yufei really encountered a hard bone, this situation is indeed very different from our expectations, it can be seen that Mariska wants to end the game within two games, what Chen Yufei needs to do is to bite the score, although the state is not the best, but still try to drag the game into the deciding game. In the second half of the game, Mariska continuously mobilized Chen Yufei, as well as a direct score of the opposite corner, Chen Yufei fell behind 12-15, if the situation could not be reversed at this time, it would be difficult for Chen Yufei. Mariska scored another point in the diagonal to extend the lead at 16-12. Chen Yufei returned the ball high again and lost another point. Chen Yufei was no longer able to return to the sky, lost points in a row at the end of the game, lost another game 12-21, and was swept by Mariska with a total score of 0-2!
With Chen Yufei losing the women's singles championship in an upset, in this Japan Badminton Masters, the national feather officially failed to win all five championships, Chen Yufei's loss of the chain is indeed very surprising! After the end of the last match day, the national feather won the mixed doubles, men's doubles, The women's doubles champion and runner-up, Chen Yufei's women's singles final is also considered to be very stable, and the outside world generally believes that the men's singles final between Shi Yuqi and Axelsen is the key to whether the national feather can win all 5 championships, but the truth is somewhat surprising, before Shi Yuqi, Chen Yufei has lost.
Before the women's singles final between Chen Yufei and Mariska, the mixed doubles final has been the first to end, and in the peak duel of the national feather civil war, the phoenix combination Feng Yanzhe / Huang Dongping missed the game point 23-25 in the first game After the defeat was obviously affected by the mentality of the second game, the second game collapsed 9-21, and finally lost 0-2 to the IELTS combination in the national feather civil war, Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong won the third tour championship of the season, which is very beneficial for the IELTS combination to impact the qualification for the year-end finals. The first two finals of this tournament to end: Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong 25-23, 21-9 Feng Yanzhe/Huang Dongping, Mariska 21-12, 21-12 Chen Yufei.
